Chef Bobby Flay travels around the United States and tries to beat award-winning cooks at their own game. While the unsuspecting cooks think they're participating in one Food Network special or another, Flay and his team study up on their opponent's dish and get in some practice. Then Flay and company surprise the cooks during a taping session, challenging them to what amounts to a cook-off -- Flay's team and the cooks each prepare the dish, which is taste-tested by a panel of impartial judges. The specialties can be anything -- wedding cakes, pizza, barbecue, pie and more. Sometimes Flay wins, and sometimes he loses. As he says, "It's anybody's game."

Bobby Flay is no stranger to culinary competitions, whether he's hosting ("Bobby's Dinner Battle") or competing ("Throwdown With Bobby Flay"). In this program he does both. Each half-hour episode begins with two chefs competing to create a dish using an ingredient chosen by Flay. The winner of that challenge -- as determined by a special guest judge -- goes to the second round, in which he or she does battle against chef Flay. To make things a little more fair, the challenger has an advantage by being able to prepare a signature dish that is unknown to Bobby until the start of the round. Once he learns what the dish is, Flay must immediately come up with his own version. A panel determines the winner of the second round through a blind taste test. Food Network regulars Sunny Anderson, Anne Burrell and Giada De Laurentiis are among the judges appearing on the show.

Based upon the format of the original Japanese version of "Iron Chef," the series features a Kitchen Stadium filled with culinary equipment. At the beginning of the episode, an outside challenger chooses one of Kitchen Stadium's resident chefs to compete against. Then the host unveils a "secret ingredient," which the competing chefs must incorporate into each dish they create.

Four chefs call on their culinary skills as they face off against one another to prepare a spectacular three-course meal consisting of an appetizer, entree and dessert. The catch? In each round, they have to use all the ingredients the show provides them, however unlikely they might be (Gummi Bears, anyone?). At the end of each course, a panel of three guest judges "chops" one chef who fails to measure up in terms of taste, presentation and creativity. The last chef standing takes home bragging rights and a cool $10,000. Ted Allen hosts.

Coming up with ideas for dishes using the mystery ingredients provided on "Chopped" can be difficult for adult chefs with years of experience, so imagine how difficult it is for young chefs on "Chopped Junior." In this version of the long-running franchise, children are tasked with making something out of mystery-basket ingredients that don't seem to go together. The usual "Chopped" judges are joined by celebrity guest judges to determine which kids advance after each round. The winning cook earns the same $10,000 prize that adults win on the main show. If things get a little too intense for the youngsters, host Ted Allen is there to comfort them and encourage them to keep going.

Food Network's go-to guy for grilling, Bobby Flay, partners each week with a viewer (selected from audition tapes and known to be a grill master) who brings his or her own best recipe to prepare. Bobby, however, doesn't even know in advance whether the dish is going to be fish, meat or vegetable, forcing him to whip up his own recipe on the fly. This isn't a competition between Bobby and the guest griller -- it's the opportunity of a lifetime for a Flay fan to grill alongside the grillmaster himself.
